--*--

The Sparkassen Chess Meeting held in the city of Dortmund, Germany in 2001 was a category XXI tournament. Six of the world's best players, including the World Champion, competed in a double round robin format in what was heralded as the strongest chess tournament of the year. The participants were (in order of ELO): Vladimir Kramnik (2802), Vishwanathan Anand (2794), Alexander Morozevich (2749), Michael Adams (2744), Peter Leko (2730), and Veselin Topalov (2711). In the end, Kramnik just barely triumphed over the field with 6.5/10, tying with Topalov, but winning on the tiebreak system having gone undefeated. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 Kramnik 6.5/10 ** 1 1 1
